Welcome to Quayside my town by the seaside!


Thank you for visiting my blog and thanks even more if you decide to follow :-) I really do enjoying doing it and love to share my projects with you all! In the village at last count I had 18 houses, 14 little roombox size shops, 3 half houses, and 1 half church (half being just a front!) there's also 1 quarter of a house (just half of a front lol) 2 market stalls, 3 market carts and beach huts on the beach although theres always seems to be room for just one more!

I also have a my 1st house a traditional Victorian manor which is very special as it was bought with money left to me by my beloved Nan. There's also my witches house and a witches shop. I also have a lovely Honeychurch house which is my Christmas shop and house and my latest venture a little vintage cottage. But the bulk of my property empire is Quayside, my little Cornish seaside village full of lovely individual cottages and all its wonderful residents. This has become a real labour of love and has turned me from a Dolls house fan into a complete and utter addict! The links below will take you to each of my houses and I especially hope you enjoy your visit to Quayside :-)

A harbour especially for Bob!

I had a nice little space in front of Lavender Cottage and where the mdf was a bit higher it had a step down and made me think it would make a great little harbour for Fisherman Bob to put his boat in! I raided the outbuilding where we keep all the firewood and found a nice thin piece of ply that I then cut to size. I used the brightest blue I could find! It is Cornwall after all so a lovely blue sea is a must! I made the harbour wall from bits of wood and stone effect vinyl flooring. I made the jetty from another bit of wood and added some shells washed in by the tide. Lastly I sponged on some lighter blue paint and am undecided whether or not to just add a coat of clear varnish just to make it a bit shinier. I had thought about using some scenic water but its quite a big area and would prob need a couple of tubs which is quite expensive so won't do that at the mo. I managed to make it just low enough that I can open both doors of the cottage without having to move it.

Fisherman Bob is sorting his nets..............

 .........and Barney is waiting on the jetty watching guard over the lobster pot!

Added a bit of rope to tether Bobs boat which I picked up from the beach by the caravan.

And of course a Quayside lifebuoy!

Quite pleased how it turned out considering the total cost was free! :-)
